Signs and Symptoms of Eye Problems in Infants

Vision is important as a baby begins to grow and learn. Even in infancy, it is important that your child receive regular eye examinations, probably by your pediatrician at first, then later by an ophthalmologist or other eyecare specialist. Certainly by pre-school your child should be having regular eye examinations to maintain proper eye health. 

Any of the following signs or symptoms may be indicative of a number of serious eye problems. If your infant experiences any of the following, see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible: 
 
  • Discharge from eyes 
  • Droopy eyelids 
  • A white pupil in either or both eyes 
  • Eyes that wander, shake or vibrate 
  • Eyes tearing or wet-looking, when not crying 
  • Any swelling or lump in or around the eyes or eyelids 
  • Child not looking at mother by three months of age 
  • Eyes that do not appear to look in the same direction 
  • Any difference in size, shape or color of any part of the eye or eyelids 
  • Redness of the eye
